Anti-woke pundit gets asked to define "woke"; brain breaks.

And when they do finally get around to coming up with a definition, this is the kind of garbage they come up with.

A radical belief system suggesting that our institutions are built around discrimination, and claiming that all disparity is a result of that discrimination. It seeks a radical redefinition of society in which equality of group result is the endpoint, enforced by an angry mob.

Or this:

Wokeness claims:
1. Western civilization and its institutions were and are discriminatory, and serve the purposes of those in power (typically, white straight men);
2. That discrimination is both historic and ongoing, and all group disparities are explained by it.

Observant people will notice the amount of work the word "all" is doing in both these definition. Because if you replace that word with something like "some" or "often," the definitions are reduced to pure statements of fact. In other words, the only way they can make "wokeness" into a bad thing is by lying about it.

Haters and crumb bums will also note I didn't address the claim about angry mobs seeking to radically redefine society but that is simply because it's a stupid claim on its face.
